If you’re free to tee it up on Monday, Aug. 13, there’s a golf outing worth your time – and you’re a winner no matter how you play.
Billy Casper Golf is hosting the “World’s Largest Golf Outing” at more than 100 courses across 27 states to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, an outstanding organization that helps our wounded soldiers when they come home.
In the WLGO, four-man teams play for prizes on the course, testing their golf in a scramble format, and prizes off the course, testing their fundraising skills. More than $100,000 has been raised already by teams signing up and enlisting sponsors.
Last year, more than 2,000 players at 80 courses took part in the WLGO, and both figures will be surpassed this year. Tournament organizers say the outing will go into the Guinness Book of World Records as, truly, the World’s Largest.
